7:02am
i think something that occurred to me yesterday, what we saw yesterday was the thrill of defeat. if you could watch that game yesterday and go back to the ticket booth and say i want my money back, that wasn't enough for me, you got a very high bar for drama and excitement and entertainment >> debra roberts is there. we'll have a live report from her in just a little moment. thankfully the temperatures aren't as bad there as they are here. off the florida coast, take a look at what's forming this morning. tropical storm developing and developing rapidly. it has a name, bret, it has sprung in the last few hours. >> we got to talk more about the scorching temperatures across the majority of the country. >> good morning, yunji. >> good morning, this is the
7:03am
17th straight day of 100-degree temperatures. wild fires burning farther east. all of this dry brush is ready to ignite. it doesn't get much hotter than this. whether it's a good splash of water to the face, a quick break to wipe away the sweat or trying to hydrate away the heat. people are desperate for relief. as temperatures rise, water levels are falling, fast. these oklahoma ponds, now, empty, dry and dusty. in southwest oklahoma, he's fighting to save fish from his shrinking ponds. he's moving them by hand by deeper water >> it's tragic. we're losing the water and owl of the fish. >> reporter: high temperatures are scorching much of the midwest. >> for the first time in 27 years, the usa cup here in minnesota has been postponed due to heat. >> reporter: in nebraska,
7:04am
they're flowing ice in the pools. that heat wave is steadily moving east. on a day where you could use a swim, city budget cuts have forced the closure of the pools in ft. worth. the severe heat combined with the drought, can spark fast-moving grass fires. texas could set yet another e record for the worst fire season, ever. and it's more than simple discomfort. heat-related deaths are number one killer -- heat is weather-related killer in the u.s. if you're out in these conditions today, make sure to hydrate. drink two bottles per hour to avoid heat stroke. >> thank you. sam, this feels like everybody's affected by this
7:05am
heat wave. >> yes, texas and oklahoma have never gotten out of it. the last heat wave, this one is longer and worse. when you see numbers like 97 in minneapolis, 9 a in kansas city, not a record today. what's happening there, this heat is releasing all of the water from the saturated ground. it's more humid in minneapolis than it is in new orleans. your heat index levels would be above 100 degrees. we're warming everything up. as bad as it was it gets worse this week now to casey anthony. she walked out of jail a free woman just after midnight on sunday morning. now, new details about her secret escape. jim avila is in orlando with the very latest. good morning to you, jim. >> reporter: good morning, josh. as the caylee memorial grows, we're learning the first clues about where her mother might be just 36 hours after her release
7:06am
from jail. it's a secret from her parents. she was welcomed to come home at least temporarily, but opted to fly out of town in the dead of night. this single-engine prop plane which left orlando executive airport after casey anthony's release is registered a wealthy california attorney. the plan appears to have taken a route west. eventually landing at press scott at 3:00. the only word from casey anthony was a crypted message. and still nothing when jose baez appeared on fox news overnight. >> is she or has she left

7:08am
in our next half-hour, dan abrams and nancy grace will join us more. now on the phone hacking rocking rupert murdoch's media empire. rebekah brooks arrested over the weekend and the top police officer resigning. jeffrey kofman has more. >> reporter: good morning to you. it's incredible. this scandal unfolding with lightning speed. the air around murdoch himself is getting awfully thin. will where will all of this stop? daughter. just a week ago, he indicated that saving her was as important to saving his global empire. but this crisis well beyond his control. brooks, former editor of his now-closed news of the world. on friday, she resigned. on sunday she was arrested and
7:09am
questioned about alleged criminal activity while she was at the helm. >> it's very unusual for somebody to be arrested by appointment on sunday. there could be operational reasons for that. >> reporter: as the news tighten, the focus turns to his murdoch's son, james. rupert murdoch hoped that james would take over the family empire that is now not clear either will survive. >> there was a particular settlement that i authorized and was said with information -- i acted on advice of executives. >> there's more. last late night, the head of scotland yard, sir paul stephenson became the latest casualty in this phone hacking
7:10am
scandal. for failing to opening an inquiry into the paper. and tomorrow, should be another dramatic day. both murdochs and rebekah brooks to appear in front of parliament to answer questions. robin? >> thank you so much. now, something that we're going to be talking for some time. >> four years at least. we're turning now to team usa's heartbreaking loss to japan in the women's world cup yesterday. the american women had been the favorites going in. if not, sentimental. they hadn't lost to japan in 25 prior matches. twice japan rallied late to tie the score and sending it to penalty kicks and abc's debra roberts in frankfurt where japan
7:11am
won it all. >> reporter: i don't have any finger nails left after that match. in the end it was japan's moment. first asian country to ever claim a world cup title. >> it is japan's world cup! a broken-hearted usa. who thought they had it won twice, are beaten. >> reporter: japan basiced in its own cinderella story. flooding the field in elation. >> after the first half, was that psychologically sort of difficult for you all? >> no, i thought we felt confident the whole game leading up to the very last penalty that made them champion sfls at a certain point, you have to give credit to japan. they scored great goals. >> all of japan, can have at least a semiambulance of a smile. >> reporter: commentators
7:12am
thought the japan suffered from a case of nevers. never beaten usa. never been to a world cup final. never played under a strain, on their shoulders the weight of entire country still reeling from the devastating earthquake and tsunami. it was a remarkable win for a team overpowered in so many ways. the average height of the japanese players is only 5'4". yet they refeudsed to relent to the united states' intense play. just nine minutes away from a victory, japan stunned onlookers with their first goal of the game. with header, american superstar abby wambach led her team to 2-1 lead but a resilient japan wouldn't give up.
7:13am
an agony shootout followed. when it was said and done, the team that refused to believe in never pulled out the upset of the ages. what do you say to fans and family? >> i think we'll say that we'll be back. this team has so much to be proud of and we have such a bright future. >> reporter: a tough, tough night for the american women. they just boarded a plane headed back home to get some much-needed rest and to already begin thinking about next year. >> you have to believe that they'll be back again. i know robin, we were both tweeting as we watching yesterday. on the bike. of got stuck there thinking perhaps it would be the thing that would bring it home how much miles? >> about 29. they're doing what they can. heather said it best in deb's report. japan deserving of this victory.

7:32am
pocket. she's estranged in from her parent. >> for those people saying that she's going to get a reality show, she's going to be famous, they're discounting how much anger there is against casey anthony. any major corporation is going to have a hard time being associated with casey anthony. i think it's going t t have to e more of an organization that doesn't care what the public thinks of casey anthony. i think she'll get a one-time pay out to do an interview. i think people will be surprised by how much backlash there will be. >> nancy, i want to your reaction when she walked out a free woman. doesn't have to report to a probation officer, anything like that. what was going through your mind when you saw her walking out?
7:33am
>> well, mostly disappointment. disappointment in our justice system and i think that's the general sentiment. no one wishes for vigilantly justice. people who are opposed to the jury verdict, are really seeking justice. i don't believe those people are interested in harming tot mom casey anthony. as far as her getting deals, they're already coming in. an interview with jose baez, said that he's already fielding up offers, up to $1 million. they're going to come in. it's just like porn. nobody in church on sunday morning saying they're going to watch it but they do. >> there are some people that due process has been served. she faced a jury of her peers. case closed. everybody should move on. is that fair to say? >> that is accurate.
7:34am
it's fair and true. due process has been served. the jury system was implemented and just because many people disagree with the verdict, doesn't mean that due process wasn't implemented. now, she's off on her way. the next verdict will be by the america public. whether they want to watch her on pay per view or in her interview, paid interview or in her book. >> it's going to be interesting to see. no, no. when push comes to shove, it will be interesting to see what happens dan, this is not the first high-profile act wittal. this is different. >> we compare this to o.j. simpson. the world also thought, many in the world thought that was the wrong verdict. o.j. simpson had a community of people, supporters, fans from his days as an athlete who was behind him when he women came
7:35am
out. this isn't the case here. people are saying that the justice system worked. people are saying there was reasonable doubt. you don't have almost anyone who's saying that they put the wrong person on trial here. as was the case in o.j. jim simpson's case. the other thing that makes this different is the timing of it. back in the mid-1990s, you didn't have cell phones where you could take picture of people or facebook or twitter. any time anyone sees her anywhere, it's going to be accounted for. it's going to be a totally experience for her. >> when do you think we'll see her again? a couple of lawsuits floating out. >> we'll see her again. if she comes to the dengss for the lawsuit. the first one is by zenaida
7:36am
fernandez-gonzalez. that's the first one. i think that there's going to be many more. dan, i think they're going to be people around tot mom casey anthony. he had a c click. she's going to find the some things. did you see that guy holding a sign, casey, will you marry me? enough people want to be around her for whatever bizarre reason in her mind. >> there's no question. scott peterson sitting on death row, still gets marriage proposals on a regular basis. but it's still going to be a different situation. sure, she'll find a group of people.
7:37am
when it comes to selling her story, adapting to a community, when it comes to walking into a restaurant, i think it's going to be even worse for her than it was for o.j. >> she'll lie her way right through it. come on, her parents tried to get in touch with her. she won't even speak to her parents. >> nancy, you have too many people -- >> tried to use them -- she tried to use them as media decoys when she left the jail. >> there are too many people out there who love nancy grace, who watch nancy grace on a regular basis, who are going to see her out there, somewhere, are going to give her a very, very hard time wherever she goes. >> well the most important people have spoken. those were 12 members of the jury. that's all that mattered. from here on in, in my mind, it's over.
7:38am
she's going to start a new life a pot of money. and she's going to leave the sweet life the good life. she's finally got it. >> one thing that you agree on, people are ready to see this over. nancy and dan, thank you. >> thank you, robin. sam and the weather. >> we'll start with heat. lot of people will say that's summer. it's more than that. it's persistent and kind of abusive with the combination of humidity. dallas, this could be a big day for you. if you break your 16 days -- consecutive days at 100 degrees today, it would be a shallow victory. that heat roars on this weekend. heat and humidity. already feels like it's 100 degrees. chicago land gets into the 90s. kansas city, that heat will spread into the east.
7:39am
